HP has launched four new 762mm-wide PageWide Web Presses. The manufacturer announced the release of the new presses, which are powered by High Definition Nozzle Architecture (HDNA) technology, at Graph Expo held in Orlando, Florida.
The new models include the PageWide Web Press T390 HD, which is being shown at Graph Expo, as well as fellow colour machines the T380 HD and T370 HD and the mono T390M HD.
They have replaced the original T300 Series Inkjet Web Presses, which were launched at Drupa in 2008, by upgrading the technology in those machines to HDNA, bringing the 762mm T-Series presses in-line with the 559mm and 1,067mm models that have already been upgraded to HDNA over the past year.
HP said the new machines close the quality and performance gap between digital and analogue technologies and enable printers to shift more work from offset presses to reduce waste and makeready times, and to streamline supply chains.
The new presses can handle media widths of 203mm to 762mm, including a range of standard uncoated offset media, inkjet-optimised coated media, ColorPro media and offset coated media with HP Priming Solution in thicknesses from 40gsm to 350gsm.
HP PageWide Web Press Division worldwide director of marketing and business development David Murphy told PrintWeek: “The benefits of HDNA technology are increased image quality and enhanced productivity.
“It opens the door for new kinds of high-quality applications that include magazines, catalogues, high-quality marketing collateral, posters and the like. It creates new value opportunities for brands and publishers that have extraordinarily high-quality demands and discerning opinions on what is offset replaceable.”
